Embrace Target Heart Rate Through Spinning
19 March 2021
You know the expression, "it's like riding a bike". which means once you have learned how to do something, it is hard to ever forget. Indoor Spinning will let you enjoy the action and you will be pedaling furiously (with a high cadence) on a low gear.
Spinning is a most efficient use of your strength and energy. If you consciously incorporate spinning into your training, you will become more physically fit and better able to achieve high cadences for long periods of time, just like the pros.
An intense indoor cycling workout led by a qualified instructor who will take you through a 40-60 minute program. Usually set to music, these workouts are short but intense, with a focus on building your overall cardio. Depending on your training plan, you most likely have a different goal than simply burning calories. Spin classes will be a great addition to your training and here is why:
- It gets you out of solitary training. Most people work harder when there are other people around, it is just a simple fact. You will likely push yourself more in a class with 20 other people than you would alone in your basement. Having a community is so important, especially for beginners, as it helps you build both muscular and mental strength.
- Effective strength training. Spinning allows you to add some serious resistance. Step up out of the saddle, and really give it everything you have. Yes, it may be different than tackling a physical hill, but it is targeting all the same muscle groups.
- Overall cardio. If you are getting your heart rate up and maintaining for 45 minutes to an hour, you are challenging your cardio ability and conditioning your body to the feeling.
- Pedaling efficiency. Sitting on a stationary bike is the perfect time to focus on your pedaling technique. There are no distractions, so really concentrate on pedaling in a circle, making to most of every part of the rotation.
If you are getting your heart rate up and maintaining for 45 minutes to an hour, you are challenging your cardio ability and conditioning your body to the feeling. Like cycling itself, spinning is a great way to work on your range of motion and better your overall fitness through low-impact training.
